Sweet Spring Grass Wreath

I want to start off today's post by saying the original idea for this wreath project comes from P.S. Capture The Details.  I saw her yarn grass wreath on Pinterest and loved how simple & striking it was in design.  Unfortunately (as is the case with many Pins), it didn't go to the actual source, so it took a while to track down who to credit.  This is such an easy project - even a non-crafter can make it!  And it's the perfect springtime decoration.

All that's needed is a foam wreath, some green eyelash yarn, a few pins, ribbon and some floral decorations:

You simply wind the yarn all the way around the wreath, totally covering the foam, which gives the effect of blades of grass.  One skein does a good job filling up a 10" wreath.  Cut a loop of ribbon to hang the wreath and either make a knot at the end or overlap and pin the ends together on the back of the wreath like I did:

Add some strategically placed flowers.  I used some sprigs of millinery & satin flowers that were wired so just cutting them apart makes it easy to poke them into the foam. Then the wreath is ready:

Since I have a covered porch and double front doors I made two to add a little "Spring" to our front steps:

Easy & cute!
